it is being done. and it is immoral for a -- for the united states of america to have tens of billions of people without health insurance and adequate health care. that's a bad thing. that is not american. >> the three big buzz words are cost, quality and coverage. we know some trillion dollar plan will probably cover more people. will it decrease costs? the c.b.o. says no. people say, why would we do that? that's not clear. in fact that have private insurance already, have said in the "wall street journal" poll, they think it is going to get worse, there's a public auction out there and maybe they're a private company will water down their insurance man and i might say, my company is not great, so maybe i'll go on the public plan. that's how everybody is thinking. that's why this has gotten away from the president. he's got to do a better job about selling why it is worth this. >> he's got a complicated argument. the republicans came in with a simple bumper sticker. government takeover of health care and everybody hates it. and he adds, things get worse if we don't do anything, how do
americans are figuring out that it is bad for america and bad for them, so i think we are seeing the pendulum swing back. he is changing the political climate back to republican. greta: so what is the strategy for the republican party as these town halls continue to unfold across the country during this recess? >> this is a groundswell of grass roots people who are ticked off, and that is why we have a democracy. it is not so much of a grand strategy as a and a weakening or a reawakening of the country. xd-- not as much of a grand strategy as a weakening or a we awakening -- or a reawakening of the country. free enterprise, personal responsibility, liberty, and the like, and he is headed in a different direction. greta: they have said this is a little bit like herding cats. as a practical matter, the president and speaker pelosi and the senate majority leader, and they do not even need republican votes to get this passed, so why do they not just go ahead, get there and democrats, and forget about republicans and pass it? then what? >> well, they have the votes to do that, but i t
is the day i break my diet. oh, this job. how do i work with these conditions? hello, america. i have decided, because i saw the president's town hall meeting -- oh, it was rivetting. i think i have to change my thinking around this healthcare bill, because now, all of a sudden, reputable doctors are showing up to town halls, like totally reputable doctors, like totally showing their support for obama-care. >> your name? >> we're position is that we are like so for treating preventable conditions. how will it help me as a p.d.p.? >> first of all, give her a hand, because she is a primary care physician. [applause] how long have you been practicing? >> four years. >> give her another hand! glenn: i got to tell you, that was like so awesome, she was just like, there, i mean, she was like, i'm a doctor and i have doctor-like questions. that was great, and then, finally, a town haller, without that pesky cell phone interrupting sheila. it was great. i loved how sheila was spontaneous, you know, give sheila a little loving. it was great. it was unscripted. it was almost a pure moment. sheila jacks

the campaign is there is no red america, no blue america, no republican, no democrat. there is one america. tonight if what we are hearing is correct, if he says we are going to cling to the public plan no matter what, he is saying blue america wins. i'm the president of that america. this government-run plan doesn't have the support in the middle. that's why he is losing democrat support in the senate and thinking of trying to jam this through quickly with 50 votes. >> roy, do you think this is something they would go ahead with or maybe trying to float this idea to put pressure on everyone to come to some sort of agreement? >> i think that has to be part of it. just today gibbs said they hadn't decided in they were going to stop negotiating with the republicans. kyl said he wasn't going to whip up votes and grassley saying he might not support the thing he was negotiating for. all the signals were there and they weren't sure. when would they be sure? when the support of the american people drop to 29%? this is something they are putting out there as a threat they could pull back. it is a

're praying for you. hello, america. i've been watching the media watch the media watch the town hall protests. do you remember the initial reaction? i believe it was astroturf. these are fake grassroots. these people aren't even real. senator barbara boxer. i like to call her babbs, says the last time she saw such nicely-dressed fake protests protests -- i don't even know what that means -- was in 2000 in florida with al gore, which, by the way i lived in florida. maybe i was responsible for that, too. that wasn't fake anger that. was real anger. fast forward to today, the fake grassroots is obviously not fake, so now that the poll numbers are going in the wrong direction and more people are getting sympathy for the people who attend these town hall meetings, the media has bailed on that fake strategy, and now have changed their opinion from this is fake anger to, man, these people are so angry they're dangerous. they don't have a gun. oh, if people have guns, we should remove all the guns. here is the one thing tonight. the radicals of the left, many of whom now work or meet at the white hou
future. i wanted this stopped. i don't want it 10 years from now. >> this is about america, remember that. >> i don't have insurance but i don't want health care either. >> yes, we will. >> no, you won't. >> talk to us that don't have health care. >> this is taking away our freedom of choice. the people said that we could have freedom of choice, where is our choice in this? >> a lot of passion although here we saw something that we have not seen before and that is a strong showing from the acorn folks. we have heard about conservative groups trying to get together to organize. our cameras got here after apparently witnesses tell me that acorn sent two busloads of people. one picture in lenticular, this was shown to me from a person who is a local person. -- one picture in particular. there is nothing illegal about that except that it upset the local population. this is a strongly conservative county, they showed up to voice their opinions and ask questions and they felt that they were disenfranchised and they were not able to get their opportunity to comment. they said that the union folk
that should horrify america and the connection to statements that other people and white house and what it new orleans your health care in the future particularly if you are elderly, handicapped or have very young child. if you believe this country is great the government health care is taking us in a direction we promised ourselves we never go down again. stand up, come, follow me. >> glenn: hello, america. tonight i ask you to stay with the program. this is not a sound by the program but it will taken out of context and it will be used fearmongering. what i call this is question with boldness. questions that need answers. we must have answers. i am only following the directions of the president of the united states. he told us how to find out what he really believes in. that is exactly what we're going to do in in a couple of minutes we'll talk about the views of obama's soldiers and why it's important to look -- obama's czars but first i wanted to start some places and show you the beginning of and the history of eugenics which means basically creating a master race by discouraging reproduc

the world is upside-down, brother, you ain't alone. stand up! come on, follow me. hello, america. oh, it's quite a show tonight. yes. by the way, that wasn't the only gem from the town hall meeting yesterday. apparently barack obama still thinks doctors are all greedy cash-hungry limb-cutting monsters. >> if a family-care physician works with his or her patient to help them lose weight, modify diet, monitors whether they're taking their medications in a timely fashion, they might get reimbursed a pittance, but if that same diabetic ends up getting their foot amputated, that's $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 immediately the surgeon is reimbursed. glenn: and that's how the doctors get you. you would think that maybe the tweed men there in the white house would have figured out, hey, this didn't go well the last time they brought up the evil doctors that are yanking tonsils out of poor innocent children, maybe you shouldn't do it again. no, no. instead, the geniuses at the white house step it up. now, doctors -- see if i have this right -- are cutting the feet off of people for cash. wow. i haven

[applause] ann coulter is now the author of seven "new york times was " a best-selling books, and i am sure there will be many more to come. she graduated with honors from cornell university, and no, mr. alderman, not the same school you attended.

again, but it did. citigroup, bank of america, nine of the firms that received bailout money paid out billions and billions in bonuses. citigroup alone which suffered losses last year got $45 billion and paid out $5.3 billion in bonuses. yet the white house has been pretty quiet. isn't the president outraged again? >> that's why he has supported things like say on pay, to make sure as we go forward at least shareholders are minding the store. we also did appoint a special master there in the treasury department to take these decisions out of political hands, someone who is supposed to be watching those firms that are getting extensive government and taxpayer money. he's certainly going to be making recommendations. >> will you assure us it won't happen again this year? remember what mr. gfineberg's description was. what he's working at is sort of balancing off the, are they going to be able to retain talent with our sense of outrage, with our sense of what's reasonable, with the sense of are we encouraging too much risk taking? we're going to trust him. >> moving on, one of the presid
for them to deny all of those other folks across america. i will tell you, there will be a backlash against this. people will look at this and say that if this is what they have to do to stop health care, their argument must be weak. go up to the microphone and make your argument. neil: i do not know where your rage was in 2007, when condoleezza rice was heckled. that became a big scene with the blood of millions. then it was a proper use of protest. what is good for the goose should be good for the gander, right? >> if they want to go to a hearing on health care on the hill, want to disrupt that -- they need to realize that they will be arrested like these folks, that is okay. do not disrupt other americans opportunities to be heard. neil: free speech is free speech, right? in april of 2003, hillary clinton was criticizing the lack of free speech issue. >> i am sick and tired of people that say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you are not patriotic. we should stand up and say that we are americans and we have a right to debate and to disagree with any admin

, small businesses are the engine of economic growth in america. there's no mandate in the bill that requires those that have a payroll of up to now over $500,000 to provide health insurance and pay at least 72% of it. and if you don't, there's an 8% tax on that payroll. the this is going to raise the cost of employment. leave their employees no choice but to go to the government option. >> let me ask you this question. i just got to the core of what's called this public option. this government option. a government-run insurance company, if you will, to compete with the private insurance companies. are you afraid that these private insurance companies, whether blue cross/blue shield, united health care, whatever, can't compete with a government-run insurance company? >> wolf, nobody in the private sector can compete with the government. and that's because there's no cost of capital. the government sets the rules. the government sets the prices. and so you can't compete. you can't win. it's 1,018 pages. that ought to be enough to tell you that this is a giant government bureaucra
